in germany and the cia never called the fbi for weeks wanting the results of the interview before they made their assessments. we are going back to the pre9/11 mentality of where we treat this as a law enforcement function and the fbi and cia never talked to each other which is dangerous. benghazi was system failure before, during and after. >> chris: senate republicans also talking about holding up the nomination of john brennan the president's chief counter terrorism advisor to head the cia and rand paul your colleague who will be on after the break says one of the things he wants to be sure is that a president can't order a drone attack against an american citizen without a judicial review. is senator paul wrong? >> i think the worst thing in the world is to have the courts decide who to target in the war on terrorism. courts are not military commanders. the commander in chief has the right under law and authorization to use military force to designate the enemy. i think we do need drones to patrol our borders but i don't think you need a drone to attack an al-qaeda operative within the

that will change, a lot of this -- all of this is being done by the cia. well, most of it. drones in particular except in explicit war theaters like afghanistan or iraq where the military does control them is controlled by the cia. i think one thing that the new secretary of defense -- assuming he's confirmed -- hagel, some of the things he wants to do is to turn this back over to the military so that at least it's not embroiled in secrecy at the very beginning. we don't know anything about it. so at least it will be out many the open a bit which i think is a good thing. >> what was the level, if any, of petraeus in the writing of the book, and what is his reaction after being published? >> well, you know, i interviewed about 110 people for this book including petraeus. one thing about petraeus, he has always been very solicitous of reporters, including me, i have to admit. now, he has two motives, and everybody knows it. one is he kind of likes hanging around with reporters. but second, he sees it as what the military would call information operations or, as the french less euphemistically cal

cheney played in outing valerie plame as the cia officer. patrick fitzgerald, the federal prosecutor, said there is a cloud over him. that's what he said back then. and here is why, according to "time" magazine, quote, though his recollection of other events in the same time frame was lucid and detailed, on at least 20 occasions scooter libby, cheney's chief of staff, could not recall details of his talks with cheney of plame's place of employment or questions the vice president raised privately about wilson's credibility. some bush officials wondered whether libby was covering up for cheney's involvement in the leak of plame's identity. joan, i have to tell you, i respect scooter libby in one regard, loyalty at this. he has kept, and it is a strange loyalty, he has never brought cheney into this thing. cheney has been able to use crocodile tears to pretend he cared about the guy. he referred to him as a soldier left on the field. excuse me, there were 4,000 real soldiers left on the field. >> right. >> somehow he comes off as the sympathetic guy when, in fact, this guy wasn't out ro
, two other things. >> yeah. >> chuck hagel, the nomination delayed, also cia director looks like he'll be delayed. is this a threat to security? >> it's of grave concern. if you look at chuck hagel, decorated war hero, republican senator, somebody who over the course of the last many years either as a republican senator or as the chairman of the president's intelligence advisory board i've worked with very closely, this guy has one thing in mind, how do we protect the country? >> is there a danger of this being delayed? >> between john brennan, cia director and chuck hagel as secretary of defense, we want to make sure that we have our -- those guys sitting in the chairs working because i don't want there to have been something missed because of this hangup here in washington. >> okay, and very quickly, john boehner had a very -- seemed like a harsh comment directed toward the president saying that "i don't think he has the guts to cut or to deal with the entitlement problem. he doesn't have the courage to take on the liberal side of his own party." what do you say to speak her of th
and brennan, defense and cia when they know that both of them are ultimately going to be confirmed. >> because they do know that and because most sensible republicans believe that a president is owed vast deference in picking his cabinet because the cabinet leaves when he leaves and the cabinet exist to implement his policies neither is true of judicial appointment, for example, now, chuck hagel took that principle and made it really hard to subscribe to with this appalling performance in his hearing. nevertheless, if the president wants a terrible secretary of defense, he's got a right to him. and i think he'll get him. >> big endorsement. >> why the republicans playing this game. >> there's a second 2kri part which george would subscribe to. the constitution divides power. this is one of the first occasions where you see the republicans in the senate say we want to remind the executive branch that you have to have some deference to us. lindsey graham's point is tell us the rest of the benghazi story. other folks would like to know more where hagel's money came from. i don't find it unseemly

says he will block confirmation of chuck hagel for defense secretary and john brennan for c.i.a. until they clear up issues ranging from the terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi to enhanced interrogation techniques for suspected terrorists. i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the c.i.a. directorship, hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense until white house gives us an accounting. >> democrats are angry and worried. >> what is unfortunate is the account to politicize an issue. they need to be confirmed. >> hagel is not for defense secretary faces committee vote wednesday. some republicans, though not mccain threatened to walk out in protest. hagel and brennan nomination could be put on hold before a final floor vote. should either nomination get that far they could face filibusters. >> i want 60-vote margin. you don't have to fill buster to get. they would threat on the call 60-vote margin. >> the president's only new confirmed secretary is john kerry replacing hillary clinton at state. but kerry was the president's second choice, only after u.n.

by the operational mentality in the cia after being in the building no more than a month. this was an extremely weak national security team. obama also, i think, was rolled by the military, that's how you got to serge of forces. i think he realized he was had by the military, and i think that's important. one of the reasons i'm a little more optimistic about this second term is i think this is a wiser man in terms of foreign policy, and if you look at the fact that he has ended in the war in iraq, he has meandering towards ending the war in afghanistan, he's allowing the pentagon, and you've got to remember when you look at the pentagon, you're looking at an institution that has the fine motor skills of a dinosaur. it takes the pentagon a long time to put together a timetable such as for withdraw. all obama has to do, and i know it's not this simple, but i would look at the experience, came in in 1995, gave the speech in 1996, announcing the bleeding wound, he had nazis tell schulz we were getting out and the military had a year to turn it around, and they wouldn't be able to. 88, they announced the

as secretary of defense and as c.i.a. director for the last several years. the majority leader knows full well that the reason why cloture was denied or the debate -- closing off debate was denied is because there are reasonable requests being made on this side for additional information, and i hope and trust that that information will be provided here in the next few days and when we come back from the recess, we'll have another vote and another opportunity for senators to express themselves. but this is not any attempt to kill this nomination. this is not a filibuster. i realize that's the headline that the majority leader would like the newspapers to write. we actually had some very reasonable discussions going on earlier today among senators on the democratic side and republican side to try to work this out. given the fact that this nomination has just so recently been reported from the armed services committee and o to accommodate the reasonable requests from senators to get answers to their legitimate questions. and we didn't need to have this vote today. we could have -- we could have d
